Looks like I and other users have stumbled upon a new problem.
Today I just opened my PC just to find out that I get this error mentioned in the title while both Photoshop and Lightroom Classic CC are launching. I only get to click on "close this program" or look for a solution".
Others on the other Adobe forums are encountering the same problem, please look here for more details from more users:

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and I have not done any Windows updates last night or anytime soon. I have an Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB and i have an i7 Haswell 2.7Ghz with 16GB of DDR3 1600Mhz. I have the Nvidia drivers - vers. 388.43.

The Crash Reporter Server issue has been fixed (Adobe sever link restored). You can restore the CRWindowsClientService.exe file(s) to their original state to enable crash reporting.
